Description

Guarded by two towering white pine sentinels and perched on a small promontory two miles west of Bowling Green’s town square, Historic Riverview at Hobson Grove has stood majestically for over 140 years. Within these pages and at Riverview itself, you can savor the past as you explore the lifestyle of the Hobsons, a prosperous nineteenth century family, and the Victorian home they constructed and lived in from 1872 to the early-1950s. After serving as a rental property for several decades, the house was restored in 1976 and opened as a house museum.
